Manx Genealogy

Re: Kermeen's of Maughold
In Response To: Re: Kermeen's of Maughold ()

Yes thank you I have read your posting(s)
Our remit is only the manx born with the surname Corlett!
I asked the questions to check and guide you

There were two John Corletts with a wife called Margaret married about 1828/1830 and living in Maughold I.O.M.
This over the years has caused confusion to a number of people on the internet as they both had children.
One Margaret Corlett, a sibling of John, married her cousin another John Corlett. from a nearby farm.
The LDS amongst others have variously entered the mother of the children under either Marg’t/Margaret or Isabella.
There where also others with the surname Hogg, Kermeen etc in the same area and adjoining Parishes.
Generally because of families intermarrying in the close knit and insular farming area of this parish .
We have the usual traps for following the wrong line!
The various manx people mentioned in past postings both in/from the Isle of Man and those congregating in the same area after emigration would know something of each other.

Pre 1993 and the internet, our findings of the Corlett family you may be interested in is shown below.

This Robert Corlett is a doubtful but possible claim!
